Japan Today reports: “TOKYO —In a now familiar ritual, Apple’s Asian fans jammed the tech juggernaut’s shops in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore to pick up the latest version of its iPhone.
Eager buyers formed long lines at Apple stores in Australia and Japan to be the first to get their hands on the latest version of the smartphone. In Hong Kong, buyers had to sign up online for the chance to pick up the device at a preset time. The first customers were greeted by staff cheering, clapping, chanting “iPhone 5! iPhone 5!” and high-fiving them as they were escorted through the front door.
Tokyo’s Hidetoshi Nakamura, a 25-year-old auto engineer, said he’s an Apple fan because it’s an innovator. “I love Apple,” he said, standing toward the end of a two-block-long line, patiently reading a book and listening to music on his iPod. “It’s only the iPhone for me.”
Apple iPhone5 fans it is then, all across the Asian universe.
